My 50 inch in the living room turns on and works for 10 minutes and then I get the white screen of death. If I turn it off and wait 10 minutes it works for 5 minutes. It was under warranty but it's sitting in my basement until I can find a place to junk it. I picked up an LG and it works great and it doesn't turn on the other 3 tv's by mistake. We like the LG much better

The LG is an inexpensive fix to the axxera problem and entirely erases a reason to be unhappy.

Add
Firestick
Google
Roku
And hotspot off of your phone.

A hint:
Install extension cables in ALL input output jacks BEFORE mounting the new tv.
We HDMI from our phone. You really don't want the involvement in trying to reach the port after you mount the tv.

As the tv's go bad or we just get fed up all will be replaced. I'm going to replace the outside mount in the spring so it can be tilted down otherwise the tv has a reflection of the sky all the time and we can't see anything till dark. What was Thor thinking?

Common problem. The other common issue is no more sound from an Axxera TV. Cheap enough to replace and upgrade. I recommend a ROKU TV as you'll have a full blown channel guide (if connected to the Internet) plus they have added dedicated streaming channels to the ROKU TVs as well as the original APP channels (if connected to the Internet).

Youíre lucky. Now you have a great reason to replace them with something that will sync with a u remote.

No, but somehow I damaged my SOB Insignia TV when installing a Sound bar. The RV Mfg offered to replace under warranty and I said no thanks. I bought a 40" Samsung TV that fits perfectly and actually 1" larger. We already had a Ultra Roku Device on HDMI1 via the HDMI Switcher; so it was just another Samsung TV for us; we have 7 in the house. I can't wait until the other two fail, maybe I get lucky Christmas or my birthday

I also recommend roku.
And
If you add a $14 firestick you can view bing cameras on the tv.

Bings are battery not shore power and have 2 way audio and displays temperature.

You screwed up. Should have let the dealer give you a new TV then you could "gift" it to a favorite relative you don't really like. They'll think you are great for such a gift.

But for personal use yes getting good TVs is better than putting the same POS back in. We don't watch much TV but when we do we want it to stay on for the whole game.

I actually loan money to relatives that I don't like, they never ask show up or ask for anything else again and if they do; I ask them when they gonna repay?

But Winnebago has been more than the best for me. I kind of chose my battles; and that was great opportunity to say hey; don't worry about that; here is something else. I have now had my brand new RV 2+ years and I take t back later today as they are going to fix a few more items I have identified. Warranty has long expired and these issues were not reported or known within year one.

For an eye opener, tear apart one of those "cheap" TVs. Look at the components. They're all the same under the hood. They're all mass produced from a small group of Chinese manufacturing facilities.

Iím about to buy a 42Ē Samsung on sale. The Axxera tvís donít have a code to be able to use my Roku remote with. I use a Roku sound bar as it provides front firing sound. The remote is supposed to control everything. I already took the POS Axxera out of the bedroom and installed a fan. We donít watch tv in bed. At some point Iíll replace the outside tv and the Axxera dash radio/monitor as well. So itíll be a non Axxera coach.
